Google introduced two factor authentication for its apps in order to prevent its users from becoming prey to these attacks. Apart from this, the company also offers security keys which help in keeping the accounts safe from hackers. However, carrying them all the time can turn out to be a bit of a problem for the users. Yes, now Android smartphone users can use their device as a physical security key and they no longer have to carry an extra security key with them. This will offer the same functionalities of that of a physical security key and will free you from the hassle of carrying a separate device.
